Corrie Lukkes, OTD, OTR/L, CEIM/CIMI
I have always been passionate about the care I provide when working with children and their families as they journey through care. My therapy philosophy is to make every session both fun and functional – seeing a child laughing while learning is the best motivation to be the best therapist I can be. I love seeing children (and their families) grow, learn, and develop through the therapeutic process
